    This morning at 7:30 a.m. in the cafeteria overlooking the arboretum in Bausch and Lomb (140 Stone St.) is the Artists Breakfast Group meeting ... anyone interested in art or creativity is invited.

    JayceLand Pick The Dryden Theater at George Eastman House (900 East Ave.) will be showing Symbiopsychotaxiplasm Take One starting at 8 p.m. According to the Eastman House calendar, "on a warm spring day in 1968, filmmaker William Greaves gathers together a cast and crew to shoot a brief scene in Central Park. The director relentlessly provokes his underlings, however, and the process soon degenerates into behind-the-scenes bickering and backstage drama. The problems seem real, but is what we're seeing a genuine look at the production of a failed film, an improvisational drama about the same, or some mixture of both?"

    This page is Jason Olshefsky's list of things to do in Rochester, NY and the surrounding region (including nearby towns Irondequoit, Webster, Penfield, Pittsford, Victor, Henrietta, Gates, Chili, Greece, and Charlotte, and occasionally other places in Monroe County and the Western New York region.) It is updated every week with daily listings for entertainment, activities, performances, movies, music, bands, comedy, improv, poetry, storytelling, lectures, discussions, debates, theater, plays, and generally fun things to do. Music events are usually original bands with occasional cover bands and DJ's with musical styles including punk, emo, ska, swing, rock, rock-and-roll, alternative, metal, jazz, blues, noise band, experimental music, folk, acoustic, and "world-beat." Events listed take place during the day, in the evenings, or as part of the city's nightlife as listed. Although I'm reluctant to admit it, it is a Rochester blog and I'm essentially blogging about Rochester events. I also tend to express opinions, review past events, make reviews, speak of philosophy or of a philosophical nature, discuss humanity and creativity. Oh, and it's spelled JayceLand with no space and a capital L, not Jayce Land, Jaycee Land, Jace Land, Jase Land, Joyce Land, Jayce World, Jayceeland, Jaceland, Jaseland, Joyceland, Jayceworld, Jayceeworld, Jaceworld, Jaseworld, nor Joyceworld. (Now if you misspell it in some search engine, you at least get a shot at finding it.) It's also not to be confused with Jake's World or JakesWorld which is a site of a Rochester animator. While I'm on the topic of keywords for search engines, this update includes information for Thursday, July 14, 2011 (Thu, Jul 14, 2011, 7/14/2011, or 7/14/11) Friday, July 15, 2011 (Fri, Jul 15, 2011, 7/15/2011, or 7/15/11) Saturday, July 16, 2011 (Sat, Jul 16, 2011, 7/16/2011, or 7/16/11) Sunday, July 17, 2011 (Sun, Jul 17, 2011, 7/17/2011, or 7/17/11) Monday, July 18, 2011 (Mon, Jul 18, 2011, 7/18/2011, or 7/18/11) Tuesday, July 19, 2011 (Tue, Jul 19, 2011, 7/19/2011, or 7/19/11) and Wednesday, July 20, 2011 (Wed, Jul 20, 2011, 7/20/2011, or 7/20/11).


    JayceLand Pick indicates an event that's a preferred pick of the day ... probably something worth checking out.

    Top Pick indicates a "guaranteed" best bet for the particular genre of the indicated event.
